Who are We ?
YindaYin Coaching is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered in the State of New York. YindaYin literally translates to “yes, of course!” in the Tibetan language. YindaYin Coaching was established on the vision that every child deserves access to quality education with the goals of empowering young people through excellent teaching, mentorship, and coaching.

YindaYin Coaching works alongside the families to ensure that every child that comes through our programs receives a holistic education while making one's education journey a process that fosters compassion, inclusion, and belonging as they strive to achieve academic excellence through outstanding teaching, mentorship, and coaching.
As we emerge from the global pandemic, we have made several adjustments to our programming in order to meet the current needs of our families. The needs are evolving day by day. We are propelled to think creatively about the ways in which we can stay connected, rooted, and committed through different activities. As the famous saying states, necessity begets inventions. We are expanding our SEE Learning curriculum to prioritize our students’ wellbeing and healing as we come out of the world of pandemic that has left many in a state of distraught.

What drew me to YindaYin was the organization’s mission to empower our community through quality education that is culturally responsive and to create meaningful opportunities for Tibetan youth. Personally, it’s been a great learning experience; the inclusive, collaborative and innovative environment has motivated me in my efforts to carry on YindaYin’s vision. I continue to be impressed by the quality of conversations and interactions fostered within the YindaYin (virtual) classrooms.

My children, Zayah 7.5 yrs old and Zorin almost 6yrs old, have been going to Yindayin since they were 2 and half years. This makes our involvement and bond with YindaYin 5yrs long. Within these 5yrs, we as parents have learned that the proverb “it takes a village to raise a child” is absolutely true. We cannot raise kids to their utmost ability without the contribution of a healthy and safe community for our children. We think there is no coaching or education center like YindaYin because they not only cover the chapters from the books but they are completely involved in fostering children to be better, stronger, and kind human beings. YindaYin focuses on the awareness and mindfulness of each and every single child so they can cultivate their social and emotional skills. As a healthcare worker, I have seen many young adults with anxiety, depression, and all other kinds of mental illnesses. I believe that educating children to be mentally, emotionally, and socially strong at a young age is the best way to prevent all kinds of mental disorders. I really would like to thank the entire team of YindaYin coaching for their continuous hard work and unwavering faith to provide the best to our children.

YindaYin Coaching is where I found a place of belonging. When I first came from Tibet, I was eight years old. I didn’t have something like YindaYin Coaching to help me practice, learn, and question. It was all self-reliance, and I wish I had such a network of support.
